Emboss and Gloss the Magnificent Sunflower by Jean Okimoto


Highlight the dimension of the Magnificent Sunflower 3D Embossing Folder for a glossy, glazed look in fresh greens and yellows.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with spring-into-summer design today.


Sponge or brush squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn and twisted citron Distress Oxides onto the smoother side of Memory Box Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Give it a light spritz of water and blend the inks with the inky sponges or brushes.  Heat-set the inks.  Cut it with the largest Stylish Rectangle Trio die.  Splatter a few dots of gold ink onto the inner portion and heat-set it.

Emboss it with the Magnificent Sunflower folder.  Place the rectangle on a hard, flat surface and apply a light layer of VersaMark with a 4" brayer.  Emboss it with detail clear powder

Stamp the greeting - from the Wild Rose Stem Clear Stamps and Die Set - on black cardstock with VersaMark.  Heat-emboss it with detail white powder.  

Attach everything to a white A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") - use foam dots for the greeting.  Punch ¼" circles from the green Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad cardstock.  


Hope you'll give this a try.  Using the hard rubber brayer lets you apply VersaMark to the highest embossed layer without smudging.  It's great for large backgrounds too.  

Thanks for stopping by - take care and keep healthy!
